    • One of the best things about novels like this is that they take a very sensitive subject and bring it to the forefront allowing for discussion on the topic.

    • Romance isn't a genre I read very much as I tend to find the stories unrealistic and I prefer something a bit more gritty and down to earth. Well this book is about as gritty as anyone could ask for and especially at the beginning is a very tough read! Our heroine Kate is in a terrible, abusive relationship with the worst man one could imagine. But from the early pages you have to continue reading to discover where the story will lead. The book moves at a fast pace and the author has done a grea [...]

    • Heartshaped Shards is a tough read in the beginning. Kate Kincaid is in a horrible relationship and her husband is a monster in my opinion. One night he beats her and leaves her for dead. She doesn't die, but she’s emotionally and physically scarred. Luckily for Kate she has two incredible friends to help her through it. During a trip to Ireland and Scotland she discovers something about herself. I won’t say too much more since I don’t want to ruin the story. This novel is an emotional rol [...]


    • Sweet romance story!Heart Shaped Shards opens with a horrific scene of the main character, Kate being beaten by her husband. Near death, Kate fights to recoup from the beating, and regain her sense of self again. Through the story, we witness Kate change, and take chances again. She learns to trust that not all men want to hurt her, and in letting her guard down, learns to love. Characters were well-written and I could easily picture them. I really enjoyed the UK setting and giant, brawny Scotti [...]

    • I want to start by saying Ria MacAlister did a great job in writing this book. I loved it from the beginning to the end. It was an extremely well written book. I felt all of Katie's pain and fears like they were my own. I got lost in this book. Ria made the charcters seem like they were real. This wonderful book had me on an emoitional rollercoaster, but in a good way. I would recommend this book. I really can't wait for the next book.
